This year Homewood College has decided to develop a whole school, systematic approach to bullying incidents and to work towards attaining the BIG accreditation which is a national award against bullying. We have created a team of staff representing all aspects of the school, including teachers, TAs, administration, pastoral, SLT and therapeutic services to be on the group which meets working towards reducing potential bullying within the school, and to generally raise awareness of this serious issue.

On April 22, 2014, many of the Homewood college pupils completed an anti-bullying survey. Also, on July 3, 2014, Homewood College is to have its first Bullying Intervention Focus Group (BIFG) which will include the Homewood staff team along with |Homewood College pupils and parents.

Anti-bullying week this year is 17th November – 21stNovember 2014 and the theme for our school is “Let’s Stop Bullying for all”. We will be learning about the impact of bullying with a particular focus on disability and special educational needs. Parents information is in the letters home area of our website
